Handmade Leather Hair Accessories and cake!

It has been a busy week of making and getting my business up and running, as well as this, it is my daughters 7th birthday tomorrow so there has been party preparations to be done. One of those preparations was making party bags and some leather hair accessories to go in them.

Collection of leather hair accessories

These are what I made, I am keeping the hair pins for myself and the headband for my daughter, the rest have been put in the party bags.

Turquoise Bows

I am loving bows at the moment, these bows are attached to barrette clips and look very cute on.

Red Bow

I am planning on making more of these bows for my market stalls in different colours and sizes.

Flower Hair band

I really love how these turned out. I got the pattern from Make It Love It  website which has some fabulous ideas for leather hair accessories.

lBlue Flower Headband

My daughter loves this headband!  Another great pattern from Make It Love It website.

Roller Skate Cake

And the most important part of any party is of course the cake, and as my daughter loves roller skating and we are going roller skating for her birthday, it seemed right to make her a roller skate cake! I have to be honest here, I baked the cake, my husband iced it, although I did assist in parts.

I am looking forward to roller skating to pop music, will take me back to my youth!

    Very cute! I haven’t skated in a long time. You’ve made me want to now. Like the cake, too. It’s original.

    • Thanks so much! You should go skating, it’s fun! My daughter loves skating so I have been a couple of times but I’m not brave enough to venture to far from the wall!! :)

        I used to skate a lot in elementary school, but I’m not sure how I’d do now. Maybe I’ll get the chance sometime. Have fun! :)
